BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:25 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Tiger Forces have rolled on to the provincial borders between Raqqa and Homs, securing a number of key gas fields along the way. These most recent gains come as the elite formation now begins to shift the full weight of its strategic reserve into the battle to reach al-Sukhnah from the north.


The key gas fields liberated by the Tiger Forces late yesterday include the Zamleh Sharqiyah, B’ir Zamleh and al-Khalaa gas fields. All these gas fields are situated in the desert region between Raqqa Governorate and Palmyra, east of the town of Khirbet Halul, and their liberation represents the arrival of the Tiger Forces into northeastern Homs Governorate via Raqqa Governorate.

What began as a pencil-like penetration south of the town of Resafa by pro-government forces several days ago, is now developing into a steamroller-like sweeping action throughout the Raqqa-Homs battlespace as the SAA’s elite Tiger Forces and supporting tribal militias both throw in their reserves.

However, it should be noted that with their entry into northeastern Homs Governorate, the flat, open desert spaces so far transited through by the Tiger Forces will now begin to give way to increasingly rugged terrain as the town of al-Sukhnah is approached from the northern direction. It is in this specific region where ISIS might begin to put up a committed resistance.
